Arrival was very friendly and had a parking space marked in front of the room. The rooms were cozy and romantic. The beds were comfortable and a cute faux heater heated the room. A balcony out back looked out over the woods. The shower floor could have been repaired. Also, a nice televison to watch. And a breakfast box is... More

My husband and I had our 1 year anniversary getaway here. I booked a regular queen room, pet friendly because we had to bring our dog. This place doesn't charge extra fees for bringing a dog which was unlike all the other places we looked at online. We arrived and the room looked just like the photos, all wood interior... More

We loved it here. We had read the good and bad reviews and honestly don't understand the bad ones. Look, if you're expecting the Ritz, or even a Sheraton/Marriot, you won't like it here; but if you are looking for a cute cabin in the woods type experience then look no further. The room was clean and cozy. Our wall... More

the cabins were very comfortable, cute and well appointed. We liked the small balcony off the kitchen it was a great place to sit and take in the view. There was very loud music coming from somewhere across the valley - quite beyond the control of the proprietors but it was very loud! the whole back of the cabin (kitchen/bathroom)... More

I was given a Groupon for my birthday for this place. We checked in late Friday night and went to bed. It was wonderful. The food was great and the private deck was nice. The room was a little small and the walls were a little thin but I loved it.

This is more a motel than a cabin. The rooms are very small and the walls are very thin. It is difficult to sleep when you hear your neighbors television, uti is also close to the road so you hear all the vehicles going by. The room had a wall heater that did not work, and a heating stove that... More

Office was closed our entire stay this weekend. While office sign said "open", office was locked. There are no phones in rooms. When calling office, a recording transferred me 3 times to answering service. Flimsy lock on front door, and lock on back sliding door did not work.

We loved this adorable red cabin in Idyllwild. It was our first trip to the area and this was the perfect place to stay for us. However, I would definitely pick the cabin over the regular rooms - worth the extra $$. We ate,out one night and used the cute kitchen for dinner by the fire the next night. My... More

My husband and I drove out to Idyllwild from LA. It was a long and beautiful drive. We arrived at the inn/bunkhouse late in the evening. Our room key was left for us outside the main office. We stayed in room 19 which is kind of a small cabin off to the right and detached from the other rooms. We... More

This was our second time back at the bunkhouse as we will continue to come back. Yes, the walls are thin but except for that, the rooms are cozy, have all the amenities you'd need and have nice balconys. As was mentioned in other reviews, the best views from the balcony are the higher number units. The scones from the... More
